Those Nerds Are a Threat to Our Way of Life

Rocket Science premiere. Regal Union Square Cinemas, 850 Broadway, nr. 13th St., 7 p.m. Rocket Science is the feature-film debut of director Jeffrey Blitz, the man behind the seminal 2002 spelling-bee documentary Spellbound. He will attend with the young actors who play members of a high-school debate team in the movie. With a documentary about spelling bees and a feature about debate under his belt, Blitz need only write a comic book about SAT-prep classes to complete his Aspiring Ivy Leaguer Trilogy.
